- Great flexibility for its price
- Good, solid motherboard
- Gigabyte
- Some options lacking
- Only one PCI-e
It's a great motherboard. First ever purchase of a motherboard by an 18 year old to overclock his E7200, and it works excellent. Fully compatible with 45nm processors, and provides lots of mainstream overclocking options. Got my E7200 running at 3.34GHz without a hassle at all.

The only problem I see is the fact that it has only one PCI-e slot, so some CrossFire/SLI fanatics would be disappointed...but then, if you do dual graphics, you would normally go for higher end boards anyway.

I would definitely buy Gigabyte again thanks to this motherboard.

- Amazing price for what you're getting
- Massive overclockability
- Very easy-to-use BIOS
- Solid caps should help with voltages
- Zero compatibility issues
- PCI-E 2.0
- Would've liked a better cooling solution for the chipsets, perhaps a heatpipe that covers them both and the main caps
- No RAID controller
I absolutely love this board. After all, its so popular for a reason. I got my C2D E6400 going at 3.2GHz (above 50% OC) with rock-solid stability, with room for more if I up the voltages enough. I would've liked to comment on RAM overclockability, but unfortunately I'm using some Patriot Signature Line DDR2-800 sticks, which unfortunately don't OC very well so I can't tell how much the board is affecting it. But I'm still happy with it.

The best part about this is the price. I got this for under $90! An amazingly feature-rich board like this can easily contend with $150-$200 OC-friendly boards.

Overclocks well
IDE cable placement
For the price, there is no better board. It overclocks as well as the other Gigabyte P35 boards, but for less than $100. It is missing RAID functionality and only has 4 SATA ports - it's a simple board with basic features.

Solid, stable motherboard, with good features, customizable, excellent documentation and decent upgrade path.
Chose this board based on reviews and decent specs. for my first budget gamer build. Dropped an Intel E8400 3.0 cpu, 2GB Crucial ram, EVGA 8800GT, Seagate 500GB HD and Samsung DVD drive in a Coolermaster Elite RC-330 case and have had no issues with Window XP Pro. Good value.

Cheap, easy to overclock, all solid capacitors, supports 45nm out of the box
Onboard sound
The board worked with the E8400 out of the box with its F7 bios, it was able to overclock the processor to 3.6Ghz without any problems. I've also installed a 9800GTX and a Thermalright Ultima without and obstructions as well. The onboard sound is terrible though, the static is quite audible when it's quiet,(using an Marantz amplifier with Paradigm Titans) but I think you'd get that on every board, other than that everything works great.

Reliable, cheap, stable, works out of a box
No firewire, but you get what you pay for
Got this board with E8400 and 2x2Gb OCZ PC6400 5-4-4-15.
If worked right of of the box with the F7 BIOS, although the web site lists E8400 compatibility starting with F8a.
Since it started OK, I had no problems reflashing the BIOS to the latest F8f, changed the memory to 5-4-4-15 and upped the RAM voltage to +0.3.
Nothing got on the way of installing EVGA 9800GTX monster.
Everything just works!
PS: Make sure to follow the instructions in Gigabyte web site on how to install the audio drivers properly, and you will be OK!

Great overclocker, P35
I don't really have a use for the PCIe1x slots, and the motherboard was shorting in my case.
It's a great board, I will purchase again.
Overclocked my E4500 to 3GHz on stock voltage.
Other specs;

Motherboard is a good value for price
Easy to setup
None so far
First system I built. Very easy, no issues. I have questions about EasyTune5 Pro. Can you direct me to who I can ask. Thanks in advance.

Experience: 3 Days
Best price/performance ratio out there among entry level p35 motherboards
Overclocking options in BIOS aren't very user friendly
Nothing to complain here. Great motherboard with basic & useful features. It supports E8400 out of the box.

Overclocking for the price

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

Comment: It's inexpensive, as fast as other P35 boards and overclocks like a beast. You could certainly do better on the included feature and accessories front, but that's not like it doesn't give you plenty of expandability on-board.
